Clock mesh networks are well known for their variation tolerance. But their usage is limited to high-end designs due to the significantly high resource requirements compared to clock trees and the lack of automatic mesh synthesis tools. Most existing works on clock mesh networks either deal with semi-custom design or perform optimizations on a given clock mesh. However, the problem of obtaining a good initial clock mesh has not been addressed. Also, the problem of achieving a smooth tradeoff… CONTINUE READING
